Description Ville Skyttä 2008-01-16 15:07:02 EST
Something in firefox's build prevents useful debuginfo packages from being created:

$ rpm -qlp
(contains no files)

*.debug for the firefox executable is still missing.  If I read the build log
correctly, the executable comes from copying an existing xulrunner-stub from the
xulrunner package to firefox.  xulrunner-stub is already stripped at that point,
and I suppose it'll be somewhat hard to connect its debuginfo to the copy in
this package.

Wouldn't it make more sense to symlink it instead of copying?  Eg. something
like the attached (untested) patch.

Just try to install xulrunner+firefox and run firefox from debugger (firefox -g
-d gdb). Works fine for me, the debuginfo is pulled from xulrunner package.

anyway, that xulrunner-stub link is interesting, i'll investigate it (but the
provided patch doesn't seem to work)
Comment 6 Martin Stransky 2008-02-20 07:33:56 EST
Unfortunately, a symlink to xulrunner-stub doesn't work because of broken
xulrunner loader. Anyway, the debuginfo is fine now so i believe this bug can be
